POEM ADDRESSING CONSPIRACY THEORISTS You're right to understand the underlying devious intentions of this poem. You are definitely on to something. You should really examine my other poems too (just google me) and notice the clues I have left behind. You might want to share what you find with others by starting a blog, informing the media, making videos, etc. I have said to my wife and others that I don't understand how few people notice the prophecy in my work. For reasons that are probably obvious to you, I don't want to directly address what I'm not openly addressing, except to say that, yes, I am addressing what you think I am. I know; it blows my mind too!

#30junebooks #spinepoetry

Through a looking glass,
the world without us.

The ocean at the end of the lane,
where the wild things are.

Bird by bird,
gorillas in the mist,
the soul of an octopus.

From ridgetops to riverbottoms,
animals in translation.

marleed I love reading these! 3d

Caught by surprise
Falling for you,⁣
More than words can say,⁣
Just like the movies.⁣
This is what happy looks like.⁣

Hope you like something dark.

My lovely wife,
in a dark dark wood,
good as dead,
grotesque...
cover her face.

Severnmeadows An amazing poem! It reminded me of Philip Pullman‘s world of the dead in The Amber Spyglass, when the harpies will only allow the dead to escape the underworld by telling a true and personal story, and so prove they‘ve lead a full life. 7d

Come the night, good girls don‘t speak
Savor the moment
Cherished
Spellbound.
Come the dawn, hard truths, betrayals
Shattered
Haunted.
Curse the dawn.

Repost for @TheSpineView :
Here is the #poetrymatters prompts for June. I loved your May poems. You guys totally out did yourselves! So excited to see what is in store for next month. Day 29 and 30 are hard to read. They are Smile and Fresh, respectively. Enjoy!

I love how some poems can sometimes be so simple but have beautiful imagery and invoke intense feelings.
